Paulo Filho on Wanderlei Silva: ‘I’m here to help’

Wanderlei Silva recently announced that he had a desire to bury the hatchet and train with formal rivals Paulo Filho and Ricardo Arona, today a response was reported from Filho in regards to the invitation.

“It would be an honor, I’m very happy to have received this invitation and tell him to wait for me… What he needs from me, I’m here to help” Filho was quoted as saying to concerning the invite.

Filho last competed at WEC 36 where he was handed his first loss at the hands of Chael Sonnen in an extremely lackluster bout that had the crowd jeering more often than not.

However, although Filho was the WEC’s middleweight champion at the time, he missed weight which caused the bout to be changed to a non-title bout at the last minute which resulted in the title never switching hands.

    very interesting because filho and anderson silva were supposed to be good friends, to the point of anderson and paolo saying they would never fight each other…..i wonder if this has any effect on their relationship with this budding “war” of the silvas.

    is mma turing into a soap opera? maybe more females will watch if fights are packaged that way :)

    Has Arona retired or what?

    I don’t like Filho, as a champ your supposed to make weight and make the fight the crazy! Hopefully he has changed since his fight with Sonnen and decides to take this opportunity seriously! To JOKER10: I have been watching MMA now for 4 years, but wasn’t a die hard fan until a year and a half ago! The rivalries make the sport alot more exciting! I would love to see Jackson vs. Evans! That would be an awesome fight!
